Actually this is not a topurist attraction but the way how you can reach a part of Upper Town. It is a very nice ride to go up, you can use your bus ticket too.

There is a very unfriendly driver. You live from the tourists! Think about. I recommend a personal change.

Over the years this must be the third time we have done this trip. The views over Bergamo are wonderful. The park in San Vigilio is not as well kept as once it was but Italy has suffered financially as well as many other countries...More

Very useful transport up to the beautiful San Vigilio. Great eating places with views at top of funicular. Also walk on another 400 m and there is a nice outdoor cafe with fabulous views. Prompt and efficient service.

A nice way to travel. Did queue for a short while but it was well worth it. Views are good. Regular times until late and reasonably priced so well worth it.
